After I'd gone around the crater, I headed down. This was really not much fun at all - the Yoshida trail descent is a relentless series of zigzags cut into loose rocky ground, at just the right gradient to be really harsh on the knees. I zigzagged down the zigzags for what seemed like days, wishing I had hiking poles with me. Some people were walking down backwards, I suppose to ease the assault on their knees though it didn't look particularly practical.
